Not far from here and there, but this time taken with my Mamiya. You really should see this picture at full resolution: even the inscription of the traffic signs at the end of the street is readable. This makes me quite happy. :-)

@Ronnie 2¢: These are not the most elegant residences I know, but they make a great ensemble. I like walking through these streets a lot.

Your photos have such a good detail, even at the scale of am3, that it's not hard to believe what you say about the Mamiya.

You know if feels like "Somebody's Watching Me."
I am always amazed at how clean the streets are.

@Christine Walsh: "Somebody's watching me"?? You should visit our villages! ;-) Clean streets, well... one of the most clean big cities I know is Prague; Düsseldorf is so-so, I think.

This street looks like an architectural showcase, every building is different from its neighbour...I also like the horsepower aligned as if on a show....A very crafty perspective that honours your skills!

@Japanalia: Many thanks! One of the more 'expensive' streets of Oberkassel.
